What about one engine supplier that is not a competitor. Or can be a competitor.  We can forget about engines as a piece of technological excellence. The team can play with aero, balance, setup skill and driver skill. Then its still a constructors sport, less the engine.

Talk on FP1 re if Vettel is into it now.  These people need to recognise the sport. Its not driver A vs driver B

 

We have all seen Vettel make mistakes. We have all seen Lewis crumble. 

 

This shows what a side-show this sport is.

Liberty is the owner. FIA is the regulator. Teams are the entrants. It will never work. Last where we are today. They suggest brung 3 compounds, which forces 2 pitstops. It requires  unanimous vote. Never happen. 

 

They qwnbat a good show

 

Rule changes need unanimous, so some teams wont vote

 

If you want to watch the pinnacle of motorsport watch F1.If you w at to watch motor racing, look elsewhere

The only thing that gets me excited on race day is the start.... Then when nothing happens the race plays in the background.

So nothing unexpected here. We now can be sure there is an edict that where a red car can be penalised, it will be, and where anyone else does anything questionable to a red car, they will get off scott-free. 

 

Simple. Unfortunately I've had enough and will cancel my sub this afternoon - even though the F2 race was a blast, F1 is too frustrating these days.

Fair enough, I hope you find something else you enjoy doing instead.

 

 

 

Assuming your talking about the Vestappen - Leclerc incident at the end of the race I would say though I think its a bit of an overreaction. I could be wrong but I don't think others have been penalised when making similar moves. Verstappen had the racing line at that point. I agree that Leclerc had nowhere to go but I don't think its worthy of a penalty. This is coming from someone that would have made $120 if Leclerc won.

 

 

 

Great race though, much better than last weeks race that I ended up skipping though the middle of. Its a shame most of the circuits on the calendar don't provide this level of competition.

 

 

 

Edit:

 

I can recommend the F3 too. Its great seeing a Kiwi battle for the top positions, though the results were somewhat disappointing.

Vettel-Hamilton and LeClerc-Vestappen they are kind of different incidents, but both going against the red cars

 

1. VvH: Vettel ran wide and rejoined the track against the rules causing Hamilton to not be able to pass

 

2. LvV: Vestappen forced his car beside LeClerc then forced LeClerc off the track to disallow LeClerc to repass

 

 

 

1. A mistake was made and the rules were not followed (rejoin in a safe manner), there is little one can argue as the rules are pretty clear here, and as much as I would have liked Hamilton not to win (I don't care who it is, as long as Hamilton doesn't run away with the title, I'm a kinda cheer for the underdog type - makes my family mad when I cheer on the poor Wallabies vs ABs)

 

2. Vestappen does a signature Ricciardo move and dives inside alongside another car and stops them from turning in. Normally you would allow the other car space to "come back at you" when they eventually turn beside you. Usually because their turn is less sharp they will get a much better drive off and then repass, unless you're Ricciardo. But Vestappen did not allow LeClerc any space to turn beside him, using the excuse he could not make the turn himself which is bullsheet. I don't know what the rules are here but it appears a "mistake" may have been made in that case. So the next thing you need to look at is who is ahead at the time, if you're ahead you're entitled to the corner and the other guy just has to submit. I'm sure the videos will tell in due course. Just keep an eye out on youtube.

To be fair it's as much a routine thing too. The race isn't available to watch when I would normally have gotten up to watch it pre-recorded on Sky and there isn't enough time in the evening to sit down and watch a full race that I already know the result of. 

 

If it wasn't for Schumacher the Younger in F2 and the Kiwis in F3 I would have abandoned ship a month or so ago.
